ATZARÓ GROUP beach club and restaurant in Ibiza via 360 MAGAZINE

Atzaró Group Beach Club

The sensational Atzaró Group beach club and restaurant Atzaró Beach, situated on the sparkling beach of Cala Nova in Ibiza’s North-East, is now open for Summer 2022. Listed by Conde Nast Traveller as one of “the best beach clubs in the world for summer 2022,” Atzaró Beach has become a firm-favourite of the discerning traveller, as well as an A-list hotspot. It’s the perfect place for an upscale beach lunch or dinner hideaway with unparalleled aquamarine sea views.

The food concept at Atzaró Beach is new this year. Top London chef James Adams has created a mouthwatering menu with the emphasis on sharing plates, and grilled choices, using produce grown on the Atzaró estate. James Adams has been a chef and food consultant for over 16 years in some of London’s top restaurant kitchens and is famous for his work with Skye Gyngell at Spring within Somerset House, at celebrated country hotel Heckfield Place, chef at River Cafe, menu and planting direction at Petersham Nurseries.

The new menu this year is full of wholesome, light and delicious dishes, with plenty of seafood and vegetarian choices, created with organic fruit and vegetable ingredients harvested from the Atzaró Vegetable Garden. Sharing plates can be enjoyed on the comfortable daybeds or sofas beachside.

Watch the morning sun rise over the sea and enjoy a healthy breakfast of either chia pudding with coconut and raspberries or perhaps an acai bowl with banana and pineapple. For something a bit more substantial try the grilled chorizo with fried eggs, roasted pepper and rocket salad on toast or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.

For a sharing plate lunch with friends, choose from a delicious selection including tuna ceviche with mango, cucumber and lime, burrata with sourdough and pesto, baby squid with lime allioli, padron peppers, grilled asparagus with romesco sauce and chopped almonds or beef carpaccio with parmesan and rocket. Salad options include watermelon salad with feta and mint or a tasty beetroot and goat’s cheese salad with pumpkin seeds. There are a range of pasta dishes and from the grill you can order lobster with garlic butter, sea bass, and T-bone or Entrecôte steaks. For the more traditional there are a choice of four paellas to share.

Sweet treats include San Sebastian cheesecake with a raspberry compote, grilled pineapple with coconut ice cream and chilli or orujo panacotta with strawberries as well as homemade ice creams and sorbets.

In 2019 the interiors and exteriors of Atzaró Beach were refurbished by Atzaró Design, the group’s talented in-house interiors team. The concept is paired back boho style, with a super- relaxed authentic mood, reminiscent of 70’s Ibiza. The look is designed to work with the environment and combines natural woods, terracotta pots, an abundance of local plants, cacti and palms. The colour palette of soft neutral sand tones with pops of vibrant compliments the pristine beach and crystal-clear waters of the sea beyond.

Straw cacti and potted plants frame the tables, the rustic wood pergola provides dappled shade and the thirty double daybeds are perfect for those long hot summer days. Hanging rattan lampshades add some low-key atmosphere to balmy nights. Relax on a comfortable mix of sofas, stools, tables and chairs with hanging bamboo swing seats as well as iconic rattan peacock armchairs. An Ibizan wooden fishing boat provides an extra seating area with cushions to create a casual and relaxed feeling.

Makeup Tips for Black Women

These are the Best Makeup Tips for Black Women

Finding the correct makeup that works specifically for you can be difficult no matter your skin type. And for women of color, this challenge is intensified. Luckily in 2022, women from all walks of life are catered for, and if we look at full coverage foundation alone, especially for black women, there is every shade available; we couldn’t be happier! What should I know to make up a dark skin? Today we leave you some #MakTips

Gentle but effective cleaning

For this type of skin, we must use mild cleansers with decongestant and purifying properties that help balance sebaceous secretion, and thus we can avoid the appearance of pimples.

Hydration

Skins of color have a strong need for hydration. These have a greater loss of water by having more sweat glands, so they feel more dehydrated. This is one of the reasons why it is important to apply moisturizers.

Get the right foundation color

Probably the biggest one out of the lot! Finding the correct color foundation is tricky, maybe not as problematic as it was 10 or so years ago. However, it can still be difficult especially if you are new to makeup – and if you are, you are in luck as UK Black Girl Makeup is a beauty trend to help you on this journey. The first thing to remember is that no one has perfect skin and that you should embrace the skin you are in, blemishes, pimples, wrinkles, and all! The foundation helps you here and there are a few magic tricks, like using a yellow-based foundation! Foundation can smooth out any of those kinks you are self-conscious about. However, it’s truly magical when you find the foundation that matches your skin tone. You can use a foundation shade finder to help you pick out the shade you need, or you can head to the drug store and check with any of the ladies at the makeup counter to help you.  

Although remember, the ideal is to apply products with light textures that maintain a good level of hydration without making the skin feel heavy. A good option is the MAC Matchmaster SPF15 Foundation makeup base. This has intelligent pigments that have the ability to adapt to the different skin tones that the client may have.

Use the correct brush

Using the correct brush is an essential part since it serves to give light to this type of face. But there are some useful ways in which to use makeup brushes. Let’s look at how to apply makeup using a foundation brush. For black women or ladies with darker skin, try this. When applying your foundation, whether liquid or powder, apply it across your face in broad strokes. The next step is to start at the center of your face working outwards. After this, buff the product into your skin in circular motions using the foundation brush. After this, you need to buff your product until it blends evenly across your face and looks natural or to your desire. If done correctly, your foundation will be smooth and last all day.  

Build some layers

All of us want the all-day coverage, and some days our skin just does not have the natural glow we are used to. But there are ways to get that look you want. Now, building layers will allow for greater coverage and do this in a few ways. If you are after light coverage, you need to apply a lighter amount of product and go over your face with your brush a maximum of two times. For a fuller coverage look, opt for applying more product and go over your face with your brush several times and work the product into your skin in layers. Here is a pro tip from makeup artists: Apply primer before applying your foundation if you are after an all-day look. It’s also great for oil control.  

Use concealer

If you didn’t know, concealer is the makeup type you use to cover up any dark spots, blemishes or pimples, or breakouts. It is particularly wonderful for darker tones, so try to find one that complements your skin. Apply concealer to all areas you wish to cover, paying particular attention to the T-zone. Another trick for ladies with darker skin is to use concealer to highlight some of your features. Here you can apply it below your eyes, above the cheekbones, and on your chin. This way, you are using your concealer as a form of highlighting.  

Spice it up

When using bronzer and blush, especially if you have dark skin, you might end up with a completely weird makeup look if you are not careful. Now, you can use bronzer and blush, but you need to use them correctly. Since these are makeup basics, they are also easy to apply. So, you need to dust some bronzer on the side of your face, the hollow sections of your cheeks, and then on your nose as well. Then apply some blush on the apple of your cheeks. Once you smile, you will see your work of art! Get it, girl!  

Go for the perfect pout

In the past, lipstick colors didn’t favor black women, but over time the different lipstick shades started to include other colors that work for darker women. Today, black women can find a range of lipsticks that work so well, and we couldn’t be happier. The advice here is to test out different shades to find the ones you know will work with your skin tone. This year there are so many makeup trends that are going to look great on every black woman out there!  

Cheats – wildcard:

  1. Putting a bronze or peach color is always a success on dark skin.

2. For a fresh and beautiful look, draw a line with cream eye pencil on the inner part of the lower eyelid, so they will look more rested and larger.

3. If you prefer to wear a more basic makeup, it would be to prepare the skin by applying a light base and make a colored eyeliner (for example purple or blue), these colors serve to highlight the look 

Himiway Zebra

All-Terrain Electric Bike

In the jungle of mighty e-bikes, Himiway has released its latest fat tire, the Zebra. With its broad shoulders and brawny physique, it effortlessly straddles various terrains. At the $1800-$2300 price point. It is the predecessor for the Cruiser, gracefully tackling errands on a daily concrete safari.

Coming in as the lowest price point from Himiway, the Zebra is an affordable option for e-bike lovers in search of a compelling creature. Suitable for the average commuter or the adventuresome, the Zebra has an array of features that set it apart from the rest.

The Bronx is our favorite testing ground due to its steep hills, deep potholes, and ominous sinkholes. Putting the Zebra to the ultimate test, we’ve discovered the true selling points of the e-bike.

Curb Appeal

The Himiway sports a strong design, renowned for its sleek, black look. The use of the stripes along the body resembles the look of the real-life animal, turning heads left and right. Not quite yet the king of the jungle, the Zebra allows users to take on the jungle in a classic and robust form furnished with lustrous styling. Available in a separate colorway of graphite or slate gray, the e-bike has the look of a true beast. Himiway shows that functionality and reliability can be as captivating as a wild animal in their natural habitat.

Design 

Sporting a comfortable dismount, you’ll never having to tilt the unit sideways, making the Zebra is excellent for all sizes. The integrated rear light and 48V LED headlamp is bright, creating flawless visibility. Its hoofs are 26 × 4 so you can courageously clear many road obstacles such as sinking in mud or snow and slipping on the ground. The alloy pedals showcase reflectors for added awareness to surrounding beings. Beware of abnormally high curbs with metal lips, its spokes are vulnerable to them. Unlike its Cobra counterpart’s textured skin, it is mane has been swapped out for a foot-long raised sticker. Though both the Himiway’s could be seen sneaking around the savanna, the Zebra stands out among the pack with a chic look. 

Showcasing a 960Wh battery and 52 5000mAh cells, range, stability, and safety are maximized to the fullest potential. Navigating rich terrains or just riding around the concrete jungle is easy when one charge of the Zebra will last you up to 60 miles with over 80+ miles in pedal assist. The 7-gear shift system along with pedal assist climbs ascending asphalt in dry or inclement weather. The faux-leather handle grips rival sweaty palms, though they’re easily replaceable. Understeering is unavoidable but doesn’t greatly impact overall performance. 

The battery itself is large and heavy. Luckily, it’s very easy to remove and charge when need be; you only need to insert and twist the provided key. The Zebra has an impressive range of 60 to 80 miles without pedaling, with maximized power at 750W with 86Nm max motor torque. Comparable to the extreme force of the true animal running at speeds up to 40mph, we see the motorized form reach speeds of up to 23mph. The charging time is about 7 hours until fully charge.

Performance

We see an elevation of strength to graze through grounds with the extreme 750W gear hub motor equipped with an inner ring. Created to endure the roughest landscape out there, navigating just got a whole lot easier with the advancement on the profound motor. Energy can be seamlessly dispersed throughout the layout of the e-bike, allowing for us to 86Nm max torque. 

The braking system performs beautifully. Tektro 180MM hydraulic disc brakes help force the model to a stop and for something as heavy as the Himiway is, it’s able to stop and start again effectively and easily. 

Durability 

While reliable, it’s also one of the heaviest of its class, weighing a whopping 79 pounds. Compare that to the Cruiser, which only weighs 72 pounds. The latter can hold 400 pounds, fifty greater than the former. In addition, Himiway employs high quality 6061 aluminum to give the bike unparalleled durability.

Its reserved fork accommodates wider tires which allows you to upgrade to 4.8-inch tires. The integrated design gives you protection from inclement weather, eliminating up to 98% of common mechanical failures.

The 26-inch Kenda fat tires allow for great traction, which ensures minimum sliding on the ground and plummeting through messy landscape. We’ve found that the smooth grip is perfect for light terrains.

Ergonomics/Safety

Himiway’s Zebra utilizes a soft tail adjustable seat, allowing for easy access to tweak seat height. Crafted to fit those between 5’3 to 6’3, the e-bike showcases both a step over and step thru model, catering to differing demographics. The step through, formerly an attribute of an effeminate frame, allows for great weight redistribution, which the male buyer has taken notice in.  

Riding with the Zebra reminisces wildlife quests that are full of smooth yet thrilling. No matter where your journey may take you, Himiway confirms that you won’t get too dirty along the way. With front and back fenders, the e-bike comes fully equipped to protect from water, rain, and rough terrain. Keeping your clothing and the e-bike’s exterior fresh and clean, the fenders provide added ease. The rear rack conveniently allows for easy storage while on a mail or grocery run. The heavy-duty aluminum kickstand firmly poses itself while running other errands as well.  

While a little heavy, the Zebra is amazing for those who yearn for long distance, light terrain adventures.
